  • 10 raspberries
  • 10 blueberries
  • 2 measures | 50ml | 1.7fl oz elderflower cordial I used Bottlegreen
  • 4 measures | 100ml | about 4 fl oz gin
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 2 tbsp grenadine or strawberry syrup
  • 1 tbsp sugar syrup
  • Soda water


  • Put the berries, cordial, lemon juice, grenadine and sugar syrup in your cocktail shaker (or a large glass) and crush with the end of a clean rolling pin.
  • Add the gin and stir.
  • Share the cocktail mix between 2 highball (tall) glasses. Half fill the glasses with cracked ice and top up with soda water.
  • Stir very thoroughly, decorate with a couple extra raspberries and serve.


Instead of muddling the berries put 100g (3 1/2oz) frozen mixed berries in a jar and cover with gin. Leave to infuse in the fridge for a day and then use.
